To the "Burdi Family": To the family of one of the Osco Brotherhood, to a friend, to a big brother... ...I send my deepest sympathy, my thoughts and my prayers.

Back in 1977, I started working for Steve Troc at Osco #681. After a few months I kept hearing the name Joe. After a while I finally got to meet this Joe, and what a character he was! To the Burdi family our deepest sympathy and prayers. Joe was one of a kind.
